Norwich midfielder Johnny Howson is hoping a consistent run in the Premier League could mean a possible England call-up. The 24 year old has one Under 21 cap behind him and is encouraged by the youngsters, such as Liverpool's Raheem Sterling and Tottenham's Jake Livermore, getting a chance in Roy Hodgson's squad.

Howson said: "It's good that they give the younger lads a chance, but for me it's about playing well for Norwich.

"I'm sure if you perform well in this league you will not be too far away. There are a fair few new players getting a chance for England. If we need anyone to take inspiration from here it is John Ruddy. Last season he had a terrific season and has been rewarded for that internationally."
